Dear barnita,


Consider the carbonate ion, CO32-


carbon (C) has four valence electrons x 1 carbon = 4 e-
oxygen (O) has six valence electrons x 3 oxygens = 18 e-
The ion has an overall negative two charge so we add 2 e- to give a total of 24 e- to be placed in the Lewis structure.


This affords a bond order for the carbon - oxygen bond of 1 1/3. (4 bonds averaged over three structures.)
